TIBCO Software was founded by Vivek Ranadivé in 1985 with the vision of bringing real-time technology into the mainstream.

His acclaimed New York Times business bestseller The Power of Now: How Winning Companies Sense and Respond to Change Using Real-time Technology (McGraw-Hill, 1999) has been widely used in academia and been the subject of numerous interviews.

Mr. Ranadivé has appeared as a featured expert on real-time computing on CNBC and in publications such as the Economist, Fast Company and Red Herring.

Mr. Ranadivé has consistently been recognized as a visionary for the future of business integration, securing him a place in InfoWorld's 2002 Top Ten Technology Innovators. He was also recognized by Ernst & Young as a 2002 Software Entrepreneur of the Year.
